Elk viewing improved a lot today with a herd near the Ponca Access. The bull and a few cows even went into the river for a while and provided photographers with some pretty good pictures. Elsewhere in the valley there were stragglers, but more than in recent days. A couple of bulls sparred for a while down by Moore Creek. There was some bugling this morning too.
Perhaps we can get back on track now with normal viewing. The weather is cool, fall color is peaking and conditions are ideal for the elk herds.
I got a report that the otter are in the Buffalo behind the Steel Creek tent campground.
